Jose Mourinho explains defender's absence for Man United vs CSKA

Paul Pogba, though, has been included in United's starting XI, with the French midfielder having picked up a 3-match domestic ban for the red card he picked up versus Arsenal at the weekend.

"Here in Manchester, at Manchester United, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world and you have more eyes watching you".

Victory puts United among the group winners for the last-16 draw and saw them equal the club record of 40 successive home games without defeat ahead of Sunday's visit of runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Mourinho says the 36-year-old striker isn't injured but is still needing to build-up the muscle around his knee and it therefore feeling a little fatigued at the moment which is preventing him from playing. Arsene Wenger will be left wondering how his team could play so well and again fail to get the victory. "I think the whole team has been very good since I arrived and helped me in a lot of ways". The recovery allows him to be fit to play, but United has to take a measured approach with their veteran freak of nature.

"The next match is the match that matters".

For now, though, their focus will be fully on City and they will go into the derby buoyed by the knowledge that they have two excellent options in reserve. "Romero is number one, Joel number two and David is the third best". He's not even an option. The forward hit the post within the opening five minutes, was then denied by goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, before only just failing to get to Shaw's low cross in a lively first-half display. "It's great going into the game at the weekend".

That would ensure United top spot in Group A ahead of Basel and CSKA with Benfica bottom.

A source close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-Football that the Black Eagles have talks with Fellaini's in England.

The Manchester derby may not be balanced but it will still be a game to watch. On October 28, Dana White announced that the move was being made, with Pablo Garza and Fredson Paixao becoming the first competitors from the WEC to debut inside the Octagon.
